The 2012 Moose Jaw All Star Skills Competition was a lot of fun with a lot of flash this afternoon at Mosaic. The Warrior players showcased their individual talents in a variety of skill testing events.

Team Brooks took the overall team trophy by collecting the most points throughout the events. Each player took part in at least one event. The player's skills were tested in the puck handling challenge, the accurate shot, hardest shot, fastest skater and shoot-out challenge. The highlight of the competition was the final event, the trick shot. Sam Fioretti wore a Morgan Rielly jersey and a crown on his head during the event. Tanner Eberle pulled a Corey Perry and used a mini-stick in his Trick Shot attempt.

The highlight of the afternoon's festivities had to be Dallas Ehrhardt's smoke and fire show puck in the trick shot. Ehrhardt also had the crowd buzzing when he scored his between the legs spin-around goal in the shootout. Accordingly, Ehrhardt was named the shootout winner for his impressive move. Quinton Howden posted the fastest time in the Fastest Skater event with a 13.13 time. Cody Beach won the award for his 4 targets on 6 shots in the Accurate Shooting Contest. Spencer Tremblay was named Top Goalie for his 9 saves on 10 shootout attempts. Dylan McIlrath took home the Hardest Shot trophy with his booming shot of 93mph.

The Warriors players were picked by the two captains, youngest players on the team, Braiden Doucette and Brett Brooks. Doucette was the captain of Team Black, while Brooks captained Team Red.
